Be inspired at the first three-day NextStep 2022
Want to be transported into the future of software development and dive deeper into developer skills, all in one comprehensive virtual package, that you can join from anywhere? That would be the all-out NextStep 2022 three-day virtual experience, now available on-demand, which took place over three days, from November 15 to 17.
This year, the entirely virtual NextStep was merged with the OutSystems Developer Conference (OSDC) for the first time. The aim was to deliver the most exhaustive, 360-degree overview and in-depth participation, with keynote addresses, three main session tracks, and a host of community participation activities spanning the breadth of platforming technologies that low-code is helping to innovate.
Organizations are facing an unprecedented challenge in 2022, being pushed to deliver groundbreaking and exciting tech-driven solutions. These transform business performance and experience to meet customers’ needs, or what employees and vendor partners require from a modern, productive workspace.
Customers increasingly demand personalized experiences online, and markets are moving so fast these days, there is a significant need for accelerated in-house development schedules.
There has been a noticeable uptick in cloud migrations for many organizations undergoing rapid digital transformations. The demand is there for applications purpose-built with the cloud in mind, and to that end, several of the sessions (from more than 80) at NextStep 2022 on-demand covers cloud-native development.
These are aimed at building, adapting, and integrating cloud-native applications with Project Neo, OutSystems’ tailored platform. It empowers developers to build massive, scalable cloud apps, and is there to be leveraged by the 14 million-plus users of OutSystems. But, while developing natively for cloud is going to be a significant area of developer interest, this NextStep, the primary focus is high-performance low-code.
High-performance low-code is the direct iteration of the challenges discussed earlier: finding quick, cost-effective, and innovative solutions that can scale quickly and meet changing business needs and customer behaviors. The hallmark of high-performing low-code is the ability to perform under pressure, with the fluidity to keep pace with business plans and operational strategies.
High-performance low-code is featured on the NextStep 2022 virtual mainstage. The inaugural session features OutSystems CEO, Paulo Rosado, Western Union Chief Data and Innovation Officer, Tom Mazzaferro, and Vice President of Engineering at OutSystems, Sílvia Rocha.
OutSystems started as a performance pioneer in the enterprise Low-Code Application Platforms (LCAP) space, and has established a permanent position as a robust performance application development platform in the past few years. In 2021, OutSystems was named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for LCAPs, obtaining the highest score in the ‘Ability to Execute’ quotient among all platforms. In 2022, OutSystems was also recognized by its end users as a 2022 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice Vendor for enterprise LCAPs, the third time it has been lauded.
Of the 1,300 reviews submitted to compile that report, 92% said they would recommend OutSystems, as a “must-have as part of your technology toolkit.” This demonstrates high efficiency and reliability, along with the ability to quickly innovate low-code solutions inexpensively and speedily.
A lot of this successful dependability under pressure is down to OutSystems flexible modularity to integrate and work with an assortment of cutting-edge productivity innovations, including advanced data architectures, artificial intelligence (AI), and automation.
There are various drilled-down topics, such as “Accelerating Digital Transformation with Intelligent Automation.” This focuses on how KeyBank sped up its digital transformation by embracing AI-driven automation and low-code implementation to automate its core business operations. It resulted in a faster time-to-market for introducing new and improved digital customer and employee experience.
Increasingly, driving customer engagement is becoming a part of the low-code ecosystem offering. Eduardo Romano, Entel’s Head of Digital Channels, IT, and Bárbara Blanco, the IT Solutions and Services Director for Public Sector, Health & Insurance at NTT DATA, demonstrates how low-code is helping power partner solutions to help materialize the companies’ channel strategy and mission.
There has been a noticeable focus on the public sector, with spotlight sessions like “How to Make a Public Agency Digital and Cloud-Supported” featuring Capgemini’s Business Developer, Manager Félix Lopes, and “Governance in OutSystems 11”, with OutSystems Principal Product Manager, Fernando Moitinho. He will discuss how platforms can harness the flexibility of low-code to finetune governance models in simple and complex IT, security, and authentication use cases.
For businesses and enterprise professionals, NextStep 2022 is the must-attend low-code event of the year. Hear from industry leaders, guest experts in application development and database management, hands-on sessions with low-code and cloud-native development pros, and a trove of successful, practical use cases. Learn from real-life examples from Sony Pictures Networks India, Amazon Web Services, Gen Re-Insurance, and robotic process automation (RPA) innovator UIPath.
NextStep 2022 brings together developer expertise and proven success stories to pave the way for organizations to accelerate their businesses with the out-of-the-box efficiency of low-code development.
